This iPad app allows perinatal care providers to visualize in 3D the cardinal movements of labor, fetal positions, station of the presenting part, and how to perform Leopold’s maneuvers.
The app is ideal for novice perinatal care providers to interact with these important perinatal concepts as a means to promote, protect, and support normal birth. May also be useful as a prenatal education tool.
The Perinatal Pal app allows the user to:
• Visualize the cardinal movements of labor using 3D animation.
• Interact with the 3D model to demonstrate various fetal positions in the maternal pelvis (LOP, LOT, LOA, ROP, ROT, ROA).
• Interact with the 3D model to visualize station of the presenting part from minus 3 to plus 3.
• Educate pregnant women about fetal position, station, and cardinal movements in order to promote maternal movement and upright postures to enhance the progress of labor.
